I was extremely impressed with this recipe. It was absolutely moist and amazing for taste. It was soo much better then trying to make a soup out of the legs. I am definetely going to keep this and buy more legs. Thanks for sharing

Cooked these up last night for dinner, they were very tasty and tender.(I had 6 drumsticks), I followed the exact cooking times and method except I used bbq sauce instead of the mixture. We had cole slaw and cornbread to round off the meal. Can't wait to make this again, the family loved it!! Thanks papergoddess
